Awana Kancha and San Blas Tour from Cusco
- Comprehensive tour of the city
- Fully narrated tour
- Led by a local guide
- Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
In a city known for its various types of native llamas, Awana Kancha produces one-of-a-kind textiles made from their fur. See the process the llamas and other animals, including alpacas, vicuñas and guanacos, go through to produce these luxurious textiles, and purchase any that catch your eye. The vicuña and guanaco are prized for their fiber - the vicuña being Peru's national animal and the guanaco's fiber being compared to cashmere.
Next, travel to San Blas, a quaint, historic barrio (district) in central Cusco. Wander through its narrow cobblestone streets that date back to the 16th and 17th centuries, admire the colorful ancient architecture and stroll in and out of the shops. San Blas is also home to the oldest parish church in Cusco, which you can tour with your guide.
After exploring San Blas, your guide will escort you in your air-condition van back to your hotel in Cusco around noon.

Great tour - we ended up being the only people on this tour and had a highly personalized experience. Seeing and feeding the llamas and alpacas was a major plus!
